What, does everyone think I can't look at the cup and see that? It's just something that I sometimes forget (or think I'm remembering it and I'm not) and a graphic in the kitchen would be handy. And Stirling could look at it too.

For a cup, I add a teaspoon of sugar and enough cream to make the coffee a medium brown.

Sorry, I thought I was helping when you said "I just sometimes forget if it's 16 tablespoons or or 16 ounces in a cup or is it 32..." with giving you the correct numbers...

I'll go back to my magazine.

That's one of the reasons I like metric measurements.

Oh, well then, sorry. You know that thing how you forget what a measure conversion or something is for a cup? Yeah, that's how my brain works with explaining things...

You weren't snarky. I was just being obtuse.

I've got a conversion placard I keep on the inside of a cupboard door. That graphic though would be nice (for those of you who decorate your kitchens) hanging on the wall. Maybe as a needlepoint or something. It would make a nice conversation piece.
